Conlyn had two great passions in his life, the first was education. He influenced countless children throughout his career as a teacher, and later as a principal. The impact on their lives cannot be measured, but there is no question that it was a positive one. His second love was his family. He devoted his time to being with them, and supporting them in every way he could. He loved being a husband, a father, and most especially, a grandfather. He truly treasured every second he spent with them, no matter what they were doing. His absence will be deeply felt by all who knew him.
